Thomas Jefferson Papers

From Thomas Jefferson to Wilson Cary Nicholas, 28 July 1819

Poplar Forest July 28. 19.

Dear Sir

I learnt yesterday from mr Gibson, with extreme regret that I had inadvertently let slip over the day of renewing my note in the farmer’s bank. how I became guilty of this inattention I cannot say, except from the pressure & hurry of business for many days on winding up at Monticello , my journey to this place, and opening shop again here. I now inclose a note for renewal to mr Gibson, under apprehension you may be absent, from Richmond, & will certainly take care that this shall never happen again.

I salute you with affectionate friendship and respect.

Th: Jefferson
